The lights are on
To determine the cover boy for this year's Madden 25, Electronic Arts is preparing a 64-player bracket over at ESPN.com/MaddenVote. In a press release today, the publisher has announced that two legends are competing for tournament entry in the play-in round.
Legendary wide receivers Jerry Rice and Cris Carter are going head to head for the slot, and the competition will take place via Twitter. Fans will be able to vote by tweeting either #Madden25Rice or #Madden25Carter to @SportsNation. The account will announce the winner before the Cover Vote kickoff show on Monday the 11th.

Michael Jordan FTW! :P
Name another NFL player that has been a threat in every football game from Tecmo Bowl - Madden 2005...
Jerry Rice has never gotten a Madden Cover after having the longest run in sports video game history. If he doesn't win its a crime.
Aw c'mon! Not everyone uses Twitter! I sure as heck don't use it.
It's all about JR!
I'm sorry...is this a competition? Rice all the way.
Les go Jay-ree!
Are they actually gonna show Carter's face, or just that dorky shot of his back?. . .
Lets see. Greatest receiver of all time or Chris Carter. Seems like a hard choice to me.
Vikings lose again, as per usual.
